Trickster Literary Journal

CALLING ALL NEW MEXICO WRITERS & ARTISTS

Trickster 2020 will focus on work about borders. From the time we are born to the time we draw our last breath, we spend our lives crossing borders or being limited or blocked by them. We invite you to explore the theme of borders, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual.

Trickster is a literary journal published yearly by Northern New Mexico College. We are looking for unpublished poetry, fiction, nonfiction, artwork, and any combination therein. The landscape and cultures of northern New Mexico shape our perspective, but we’re excited to accept original work about our current theme.

We’re looking for work that moves, surprises, maybe even changes shape before our eyes. We want what we weren’t expecting. Sneak up on us. We dare you.Northern New Mexico College’s literary Journal “Trickster” is now seeking submissions for its upcoming 2020 issue.

Contributors are encouraged to submit unpublished poetry, fiction, nonfiction, artwork, or a combination of these on the theme of “borders.”

“From the time we are born to the time we draw our last breath, we spend our lives crossing borders or being limited or blocked by them,” the Trickster editorial committee writes. “We invite you to explore the theme of borders, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual, and are waiting to celebrate your talent!”

The perspective of the journal is shaped by the landscape and cultures of northern New Mexico, but especially welcomes original work on the current theme.
